No. This is much too late for this kind of hackery. That second patch
in particular is both subtle and ugly, and is messing with lockdep.

No way will I take something like this the last fay before a release.

It's not even a regression, nor did you send me anything at all for
this release. Trying to sneak something in just before 4.4 is not ok.
